Frank Beamer and the fight against twilight at Virginia Tech

Age is just a number, they say. You’re only as old as you feel, they say. In many ways, those statements will always be true, but in cutthroat professions, getting on in years will introduce its fair share of limitations. Even the most accomplished head coaches in this era of college football (including one who was subsequently disgraced at the very end of his tenure) were not...

Frank Beamer calls East Carolina an exhibition game

Virginia Tech Hokies head coach Frank Beamer doesn’t seem to have any respect for teams that are not in the ACC. Following Saturday’s loss to the East Carolina Pirates at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium — which dropped the Hokies to 2-2 on the season — Beamer sounded off on the opponent and he made some surprising comments. In the eyes of Beamer, the game against the Pirates was nothing...

Virginia Tech under scrutiny over fine system for football players

    Virginia Tech’s football program is under scrutiny for imposing an apparent fine system as discipline for its players.

Virginia Tech football’s alleged monetary fine system is ridiculous

Virginia Tech defensive coordinator Bud Foster created some unexpected buzz Wednesday when he suggested Hokies student-athletes should be fined for certain acts that disobey team rules, and yes, it’s as insane as it sounds.

Frank Beamer Wants His Eventual Replacement At Virginia Tech To Come From His Staff

Frank Beamer is Virginia Tech football. Nearly everything the Hokies’ program has become is a result of the work of the 68-year-old coach, who has been in Blacksburg, Va., since 1987.  There will be a time – probably in the near future – when that isn’t the case. Beamer is getting up there in age and will likely retire sooner rather than later.  Who will replace him?...

This year, the Buckeyes have the chance for revenge, but they’ll have to do it on the road at VT’s Lane Stadium. Naturally, fans are excited...
